LEGOLAND New York Resort has unveiled its newest attraction, the LEGO City Water Playground. Bedecked head to toe in scuba gear, inflatable tubes, swimmies and pool noodles, hosts, Slidin’ Ryan and Matty Splash, introduced a new LEGOLAND New York character, Shark Suit Guy, who led the crowd in a massive wave to open the new attraction in a shower of water and bubbles.
The Water Playground allows families to cool off, build and race a LEGO boat, splash on water slides and be doused by a giant 318-gallon water bucket. A nearby changing area allows guests to dry off and continue exploring the Park’s seven LEGO-themed lands. Families can splash and play into the evening at the LEGOLAND Hotel pool, which is also open for the season.
“We’re as eager as our guests to kick off summer with the debut of our long-awaited LEGO City Water Playground,” says Stephanie Johnson, divisional director, LEGOLAND New York Resort. “We’ve developed this exciting new attraction in response to direct feedback from our guests asking for a place to cool off, but our Water Playground is so much more. Like all our attractions, our Water Playground aims to give families interactive, creative opportunities to build, play, splash and learn together.”
LEGOLAND New York Resort takes kids on a journey through seven LEGO-themed lands including, Brick Street, Bricktopia, LEGO NINJAGO World, LEGO Castle, LEGO City, MINILAND and LEGO Pirates. Like its sister, North American LEGOLAND Resorts in Florida and California, LEGOLAND New York opened for the 2023 season as a Certified Autism Center, credited by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). Every ride has a posted Sensory Guide indicating whether there are bright lights, loud sounds or any feature that guests might need to plan around. Visitors will notice a posted Sensory Guide at the entrance to the Water Playground, and they can decompress in the nearby quiet room with weighted blankets, dim lighting and tactile toys.
